Note: If you thought I was a crazy dog lady before reading this post (see Instagram account) well, it might be time to declare that “thought” official…
My friend, Nomi was visiting with her daughter, Ruby this past weekend and had mentioned she received this Handprint Ornament Kit as a gift and was hoping to do the craft before Ruby’s hand got too big. I never pass up the opportunity for a good “crafternoon“, so I ordered 2 kits myself and we got down to business.
This is a fun, quick, easy and relatively un-messy craft. “Marshmallow” or Air Dry Clay is available in craft stores so you don’t necessarily need to buy the whole kit. I’d maybe fine tune it a bit going forward and maybe use a square or rectangle cookie cutter rather than the circle. I’d also hand write or stamp the lettering on or around the ornament once its dry. Even though its a slight bit “messy” looking (hey, they can’t all be masterpieces 🙂 ), it also has a sweet homespun quality to it. I love it as a sweet and sentimental keepsake. Cecelia is up next for marshmallow handprinting since I bought 2 kits! Stay tuned! Xo Dani
